"TEA BOTTLES" China Local Custom Tip by swesn

China Local Customs: 241 reviews and 248 photos

Locals carry a bottle (with a handle) of tea-leaves wherever they go. The bottle can have a sieve at the top to filter away the tea-leaves. Hot water dispensers seem to be available at many places for one to refill their bottles to make tea. If not available, the Chinese shop-keepers appear to be also very obliging with a flask of hot water if you ask nicely.
